The Kitchen Next Door Union Station is now open to the community! Starting today, July 14, 2014, the community pub will be open seven days a week from 11am-close serving lunch, community hour and dinner along with drinks and dessert.
Situated inside the south wing of Denver’s historic Union Station, The Kitchen Next Door sits only steps from the transit center’s sleek new commuter rail canopy. This 4,250-square-foot restaurant seats 140 guests inside with more than half of the space offering direct views of the fountain-filled Wynkoop Plaza—a 40,000-square-foot outdoor open space just east of the Station.
With soaring 18-foot-high ceilings, Next Door Union Station is infused with memories of travelers past. Numerous architectural moves designed to revive the building’s history and significance merge with contemporary elements critical to running a modern-day restaurant. Highlights include restoration of the original exterior fabric and 13-foot tall windows; uncovering drywall-enclosed structural supports to reveal beautiful cast iron columns; and discovering the signage from a 1950s Union Station restaurant.
Here’s where to find us both in-person, over the phone and online:
